. but we do know the united states, the obama administration has rejected an offer to exchange an undisclosed number of american hostages. other hostages have been freed and hair he would winning new details are emerging about their treatment. for the details, let's bring in jill dougherty. she's over at the state department. jill? >> wolf, just a few minutes ago here at the state department i was upstairs, secretary clinton meeting with the japanese foreign minister and both of them discussing this crisis in algeria. she said that she had spoken yet again with her algerian counterpart and she stressed once again, she said, the upmost concern they have is for the safety and security of the hostages. but when i asked her about the criticism that's being leveled by the united states and other countries against some aspects of this operation, the algerian operation, here is what she said. >> let's not forget, this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. they are the ones who have assaulted this facility, have taken hostage algerians and others from around the wor
of appropriateness. i find it despicable. this is why. it's part of a larger narrative which president obama explicitly stated yesterday and impuning the motives. it's draping yourself in the emotionalness of the debate. avoiding the policy debate and impuning others. he said that there will be others that say they are doing it for money. for anyone that doesn't care about these children, only out here to be a mouthpiece of the nra or to seek some kind of money, it is showing, in the end -- this is what it shows, the inherent intellectual weakness in the argument being put forward. the inherent policy weakness of what is being suggested. just deal with it in a rational level. >> okay. so we're talking about dealing with this in an intellectual way, the nra ad using obama's children to make a point. maria in. >> to use will's word, that is absolutely despicable. the children of president, the spouses of presidents, president's families are off limits and so i think the majority of americans believe that ad was absolutely d despicable. i think bringing into this the effect that this event had
dug up. in 1999, then state senator barack obama had a chance to vote on a bill that clamped down on school shooters specifically aggravated assault with a firearm. what did he do? he voted present. aka, he didn't do his job to protect kids. what is the liberal media doing? instead of fair and balanceed reporting, bob schieffer are running around comparing the nra to usama bin laden and adolf hitler. rush limbaugh on that. >> where is the media outrage at bob schieffer comparing obama gun initiative with the civil rights act of 1964. killing bin laden and then the hitler comparison? surely if we can defeat hitler we can wipe out in nra. i mean surely. why does the left get away with this. this is awe tenseably a journalist. >> eric: rush has a point. >> bob: he does not at all. people , a lot of people, including myself think they're thugs. they have intimidated people. if we can defeat the other people, the guys ought to be a piece of cake and they should be. >> eric: group of law-abiding citizens comparing it to bin laden and hitler. >> bob: not the nra membe membership. there a
to do that. and the feds should respect the states' rights. what president obama can do is make all gun crimes federal crimes. congress can forbid individuals from crossing state lines with certain types of weapons. bank robbery is a federal crime. so is some drug dealing. why not put gun felonies in that category? let's take a look at chicago which has banned handguns. more people were murdered by guns in chicago in 2012 last year than were killed among coalition forces in afghanistan. obviously the gun ban in coshocton doesn't work. do we all get that? what would work is a 10-year mandatory federal prison term for anyone convicted of any gun crime in the windy city or anywhere else in america. rob a seven blefn a gun. 10 years in the federal pen. illegally possess a gun, staple deal. 10 years. that's how you keep guns off the street. don't believe me? take a look how drastically the crime rate has fallen in the u.s.a. over the past decade. nationwide, violent crime down 23%. why? because of strict mandatory prison terms for chronic criminals. if you read the late james wilson, the nat

formal state dinner that president obama has held, that's six in total. and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell had turned down at least two. and mcconnell even declined an invitation last spring when the university of kentucky men's basketball team was honored at the white house for winning the national championship. in 2011, the white house held a reception for newly elected members of the congress, only 27 of the new republican house members showed up. that's out of a record freshman class that totaled 87. more recently no elected republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration
caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> so how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people are pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault weapons ban and almost 70% of republican women. so you could see a difference because of that. but i think that background checks, waiting period, you know, the biggest gun violence is suicide. and to put in a waiting period could help with suicide. >> rick, how do you -- >> so i think you could start to see some movement on those aspects. >> how do you think republicans should play this? >> i think we should stick to our guns and, you know, george reminded me of something i said to him back in '94 when i ran for the senate in pennsylvania. he said, how

-1. and there were just five state senators, including barack obama, who voted "present" on that bill. >>steve: i see the daily caller -- you've tracked down a long record on obama voting against tough on crime legislation. >> my colleague and i went to chicago. this was in the midst of the election and picked up opposition research prepared by jack ryan, obama's onetime republican senate point. he found all this information. the way he frames it, and i think it's probably right, is that obama was always very soft on crime but very tough on guns. every time obama had a crime vote to take when he was in the illinois state senate, he always voted "present" because he didn't want to -- for two reasons. one, he said that criminal law disproportionately affected african-americans. he saw a racial component there. additionally, he said i don't want to clog the court system with all these cases. what do you want to clog the court system with? we thought given his rhetoric on guns lately it would be interesting to bring up this vote where he said i don't want to give tougher prosecution to children who shoot
